Kareena Kapoor Khan has finally revealed how her husband Saif Ali Khan reacted when told that she was pregnant with Taimur for the first time. This is the first time, Kareena has opened up about her pregnancy while promoting her upcoming film Good Newwz.
In a video shared by an Instagram handle preganews, Kareena is heard saying that Saif was the first person to learn about her pregnancy. Bebo also revealed for the first time that the couple had been desperately trying to have a baby.
She says, “Obviously, the first person was my husband (Saif). Being super-excited and wanting it to have happened, it was the greatest joy ever. I think it’s the greatest joy for any woman who wants to have a child.”
Saif and Kareena got married in 2012 while Taimur Ali Khan, their first and only child, was born on 20 December 2016. The couple naming their first child Taimur had become hugely controversial as India’s radical Hindu brigade launched a nasty campaign against the family. Such was the intensity of the campaign against Saif, Kareena and their new-born baby that, as revealed by Kareena herself, Saif even contemplated changing Taimur’s name.
Directed by Raj Mehta, Good Newwz also stars Akshay Kumar, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh. The film, which is scheduled for release on 27 December, explores the story of two couples with identical surnames and how they are trying to have a baby through In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF). However, a comedy of errors begin to dominate the storyline after their sperms get mixed-up due to their identical names.
After Good Newwz, Kareena will be seen in a lead role in Angrezi Medium, where she plays a cop. The film, sequel to Hindi Medium, is directed by Homi Adajania and also stars Irrfan Khan and Radhika Madan.
Saif has two more children, namely Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan, from his first wife Amrita Singh. Sara has already made her Bollywood debut with Kedarnath before acting opposite Ranvir Singh in Simmba with both her films doing exceptionally well at the box office.
